Sick Patient Care and Chronic Disease Management
When your pet doesn't feel good, the last thing you want to do is stress them out with a trip to the vet hospital. We can treat most minor conditions such as pain, ear problems, skin issues, minor GI disease, and more right in the comfort of your own home. Our diagnostic capabilities include comprehensive lab work with next-day results, cytology with immediate results, fecal testing with same day results, as well as routine testing such as heart worm and FeLV/FIV tests. We can even dispense medications right in your home.
For pets with chronic diseases such as arthritis, allergies, chronic kidney disease, diabetes, and other ailments, we provide continuous care. You are always free to call, email, or text us questions about your pet's condition. Unless your pet's condition significantly changes, we can usually make minor treatment adjustments without another home visit and exam fee.
Please note that because our lab results are not available until the next day, and we do not have x-ray capability, we are NOT able to treat emergency or critical care patients. We will refer your pet to the best local care possible, and follow up with you to make sure your family member is on the road to recovery.
As a long-time member of the American Veterinary Society of Animal Behavior, Dr. Meghan is uniquely qualified to help you with your pet's behavior problem. We use a combination of Certified Fear Free techniques combined with a wealth of scientifically-based behavior modification knowledge and experience to restore your pet's happiness and health.
Most behavior problems are NOT going to be solved by training. Why? Because training does not help your pet with fears and phobias, or medical underlying causes of the behavior. Your pet needs a thorough behavioral consultation and evaluation, a diagnosis of the cause of the problem(s), and behavior modification, sometimes also medications.
No medication is going to solve the problem alone. Pets with fears and phobias need to "unlearn" their response and learn a different response (technically it's called desensitization and counter-conditioning). This is where the real work begins. You have to work with your pet in a carefully designed behavior modification program to achieve real results.
We can help pets with thunderstorm and other noise phobias, aggression of any kind, house soiling, destructiveness, separation anxiety, and more. Ask us how you can help your pet live a much happier life with you and your family!
Surgery and Diagnostic Imaging
All surgeries and diagnostic imaging (x-rays and ultrasound) appointments are scheduled by Family Veterinary Mobile Clinic. We perform these procedures by special arrangement with Small Animal Emergency Services in Vass using their facility 1-2 times per month. All pets must be current patients of Family Veterinary Mobile Clinic and up to date on their preventive care.
As Certified Fear Free Professionals, all pets admitted for surgery or diagnostic imaging are given the comfort and medications they need for a safe and non-anxious procedure. If your pet needs anti-anxiety medications, they will be provided prior to the procedure. Further anti-anxiety medications or sedation are administered as needed.
Family Veterinary Mobile Clinic uses pain management techniques that Dr. Meghan has designed. Dr. Meghan is a long-time member of the International Veterinary Academy of Pain Management and as such, is well-versed on the latest scientifically-based protocols. For example, all pets undergoing surgery or potentially painful procedures such as x-rays of a painful limb will be given pain medications prior to the procedure, so they never experience the pain. We perform local blocks on all surgeries, which are similar to novicaine injections for dental work that people receive, only our patients are already under anesthesia when they are blocked. And all pets get appropriate pain medications to go home, chosen specifically for your pet and their current health status. After the procedure, all patients are routinely assessed for pain, using specifies- specific proven protocols.
We are also extremely careful with anesthesia. Both Chelsea, our very experienced Registered Veterinary Technician, and Krista, a very experienced vet assistant especially in anesthesia (her full time job is at Small Animal Emergency Services) who is very close to obtaining her technician certifications, are well-qualified to keep your pet safe and comfortable while under anesthesia. All patients have anesthesia monitors to check temperature, heart rate, respiratory rate, oxygenation, carbon dioxide levels, blood pressure, and ECG on a continuous basis. Patients are carefully monitored for at least 4 hours post-op, as anesthetic complications tend to occur more often in that time period than during the surgery. Each patient's medications are specifically tailored according to their risk factors, age, personality, weight, and procedure because what is safe and appropriate for one patient may be risky for another.
We are now performing ovariectomies (OE) instead of ovariohysterectomies (OHE) for female dogs and cats. The difference is that we only remove the ovaries and not the uterus for these pets. Years of research have shown that there is no difference in long-term health for dogs and cats who have had an OE vs. and OHE. However, the OE procedure is faster and has shorter recovery times due to the small incision needed. Because rabbits develop uterine cancer fairly commonly, we are still performing OHEs in this species.
If you have any questions or concerns about your pet's upcoming anesthetic procedure or surgery, please feel free to talk with Dr. Meghan. We want you to understand everything we do to ensure the safety and comfort of your pet.
